In this guide I explain how to disassemble a Dell Inspiron N4010 laptop.
My goal is removing and replacing the hard drive.
Dell Inspiron N4010 doesn’t have easy access to the hard drive. It’s mounted deep inside, under the motherboard.
In order to remove and replace the hard drive I’ll have to disassemble the entire laptop and remove the motherboard.
In this guide I’ll go through the following major disassembly steps:
STEP 1-3: Accessing both RAM modules and removing the DVD drive.
STEP 4-11: Disconnecting and removing the keyboard.
STEP 12-15: Removing top cover assembly.
STEP 16-18: Disconnecting and removing the cooling fan.
STEP 19-23: Removing the motherboard and hard drive.
